Notes & Reviews:

"This cheekily underplayed, over-the-top, flirtatious, French whirlwind of a program is like drinking a third glass of wine and spinning around in a circle...Les Petits Nerveux (The Little Nervous Ones), one of Francaix's wackiest scores, is given the last reading it will ever need. Poulenc's masterly sextet is likewise given the full-blown treatment...Every instrument is heard perfectly, all insecurities banished..." Ritter, ARG
